Lamont marks year of legalized sports gambling in CT with wager on Yankees: 'I'm going to win it!'
It's been one year since the state launched online sports betting and the first retail sportsbook opened in Connecticut.
Gov. Ned Lamont made the first legal wager last year when he bet $50 on the WNBA's Connecticut Sun to beat the Chicago Sky. He followed that bet at Mohegan Sun with a $20 bet a few weeks later on the underdog New York Giants against the Kansas City Chiefs, a wager he made at New Haven's Sports Haven.
